The serial is based on mistrust in marital life, discontinuation of females' education due to early age marriages and women's independence as wife. Also showing the ups and downs in the life of three women and their struggle.
Khalida (Sadia Imam), Rushna (Ayesha Khan) & Mishal (Nadia Hussain) were fellow school mates when, Munir Hussain (Rashid Farooqi), foreign qualified but mentally conservative son of a millionaire businessman had a crush on Khalida and marries her by threatening her family. She gives birth to a daughter Sanara (Saboor Ali) which disappoints Munir who already have two daughters from first wife in the village.
Mishal, a daughter of poor hoarding painter, who dreamt of becoming a supermodel, loved Ramish (Shamoon Abbasi), a boy from family friends. Mishal joined modelling and Ramish left country. Mishal is liked by a TV director Raheel (Hassan Ahmed). She comes across Ramish one day and finds that he is already married with two children but his wife died. They both start meeting again but Ramish’s children disapprove her and Mishal then accepts Raheel’s love.
Rushna became a top TV Anchor. She married to Ahmed (Adnan Siddiqui) who is an airline pilot and has a daughter Sawera (Ushna). Their married life was ideal but an air hostess Nashmia (Tehreem Zuberi), who likes Ahmed, comes in between.
Mishal’s friend Rajal (Farhan Ali Agha), a psychiatrist, one day meets Rushna with Mishal. He starts visiting Rushna’s home, pretending to help her mentally in her married life crisis due to Nashmia. One day he expresses his love for Rushna. On hearing this Ahmed leaves home taking his daughter Sawera. Rushna insults Rajal and breaks her relations with him.
Ahmed decides to marry Nashmia but first wants his daughter to become familiar with Nashmia but both cannot accept each other. Ahmed is disappointed of Nashmia’s behaviour and returns to Rushna who accepts him back as both admit their mistakes.
Khalida’s mother, Amma Bi (Durdana Butt), comes to live with them after Munir’s murder. Now there is no one to run the business as Khalida was a housewife and has no experience or education after school. She comes across Asif, the owner of neighbouring mill who liked her from first sight. Her textile mill needs material and she pawns her property. Unknown to Khlida, her Mill manager attains the fund from Asif.
Sanara is studying in Art College and admires her talented class fellow Sarim (Noman Habib) who belongs to a middle class family. Sarim helps Khalida in designing textile for the mill and is given a job at the mill. Khalida comes to know that Sarim and Sanara love each other. Sanara is then engaged to Sarim. Khalida’s mill starts doing good business and Asif gifts her the papers of her property which shocks her but she is happy.
